How Tarot Used Sound to Build A Community Around Her Music

Tarot is an LA based artist who joined Sound in July of 2022 with her genesis drop "Poolside." To date she's released seven songs and has appeared on nine, including collaborations with LNRZ, Campfire, and The Culture Tape.

She started growing her community from day one, giving all collectors a seat in the "Soul Tribe," a place where they can access BTS content and communication through the Tarotsings Discord channel.

Her latest track - "Only One" is a release in collaboration with The Culture Tape. Collecting gives you access to special rewards based on the amount you mint. Collectors who purchase between 2 and 4 editions will win a free tarot card reading over Zoom with Tarot herself.

Being on Sound gave her a new way to monetize her music and reach true fans. Here’s what she had to say about her experience:

“Releasing music on the blockchain has allowed me to expand my creativity as an artist and connect with true fans/supporters of music. By experimenting with new ways of distribution, I have been blessed to connect with my Soul Tribe & redefine that artist-fan relationship. Web3 is like an invisible string and has opened up opportunities and blessings such as my most recent collaboration with Rodney DARKCHILD Jerkins”

So far, Tarot has generated $11,355 in volume through 151 collectors. Mint her latest song, "Only One," for ~$25 until May 4th.

We'd love for you to add Sound as a platform you consistently add to all of your release plans.
